Round thing is round. Angel





If this thing was the size of the earth, the difference between the highest and lowest points would be fourteen meters. Blink

What does it say about me that one of the first things I noticed was the slight sexual tension, attraction, whatever, between them? Consider

I'm not even going to say what were the first connotations the word job conjured up.

Atoms star in world's smallest movie from IBM.

The stop-motion animation uses a few dozen carbon atoms, moved around with the tiny tip of what is called a scanning tunnelling microscope (STM). It would take about 1,000 of the frames of the film laid side by side to span a single human hair.

This dog has four prosthetic legs and oh my god my heart just imploded. (I would say that's pretty much the universal reaction Blush )

And then there was this: Can animals see optical illusions? Kitty says YES. Awww...





Which automatically reminds one of:

Rare Caterpillar Resembles Donald Trump's Hair.

"A recently videotaped caterpillar bears an uncanny resemblance to bigwig Donald Trump's hair. The insect, a rare yellow-colored caterpillar of the flannel moth, now has the nickname “Donald Trump Caterpillar.”"

This has got to be one of the most disgusting things I've ever seen in my life. I'm never ever ever going to Peru.

I understand that we need creepy-crawly things, but do they have to be so repulsive? Why can't they all be like the ladybug or something? Dodgy

@ Vera - the prosthetics for the dog, so cool by the way, reminded me of this. We took my wife's niece to see Winter, the tailess dolphin. I never knew. Amazing.

Oh my god! Sadcryface

There's something so sad about seeing animals suffer. Not saying that it's not sad when humans suffer, but at least we have the comfort of words and some sort of understanding why we're suffering. Which is why I have no sympathy for people who consciously cause pain to animals. You can't get much lower than this and still claim the right to be called human.

On a happier note - seems like my wish to be able to hibernate might not be just a pipe dream, after all Tongue
